Resound More Than Triples VA Goal for Service-Disabled-Veteran-Owned Businesses

(PRWEB) January 14, 2010 -- 3D Global Solutions is pleased to announce that it has been successful in program managing the proposal effort for ReSound, who recently received an award on the $800 million VA Digital Hearing Aid contract. The base year of the contract commenced in November of 2009 with four renewable option years.

The award includes not only the Veterans Administration, but also the Department of Defense and other federal agencies (Also known as Other Government Agencies or OGAs). The VA provides federal benefits to over eight million veterans, their family members and survivors and is the largest purchaser of hearing aids in the United States.

Many of the hearing aids that will be purchased by the VA have a feature for management of a condition called Tinnitus. Tinnitus is currently the number one service-connected disability of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The Veterans Administration is projected to purchase over 430,000 hearing devices in 2010.

Todd Murray, President, GN ReSound North America, said “We are thrilled with the announcement of Resound’s inclusion on the VA contract and energized by the work required to exceed the expectations of the clinic audiologists and veterans who will use our products. This award is further recognition of the strength of ReSound products and our company’s ability to successfully serve our veterans.

We are also thrilled to have 3D Global Solutions administer the contract and manage all our numerous subcontractors necessary to carry out this contract with top-notch efficiency. We selected 3DGS based on its impressive past performance of providing unwavering service excellence in contracts of this type and magnitude.”

Mike Dodd, CEO of 3D Global Solutions, added “We are looking forward to working with ReSound and the Veterans Administration on such an important mission. Our veterans are one of our country’s most valuable resources and we are always happy to be involved with any project related to the health and well-being of our fine men and women in uniform.”

ReSound is also adding in an in-house caveat to the agreement in an effort to further support our nation’s veterans. Part of the contract, as awarded by the VA, encourages that three percent of the contract be sub-contracted to a Service-Disabled-Veteran-Owned-Business (SDVOB). This condition is a component in a recent upgrade in the law in an effort to get SDVOB’s engaged in more of our nation’s business. ReSound, as part of an internal initiative to meet and exceed this goal, has committed to more than tripling the VA percentage by engaging 3D Global Solutions as a substantial part of their team.

Dodd added, “As an SDVOB, we’re obviously pleased that the three percent contracting level has gone from a goal, to a corporate commitment. ReSound has proactively decided to do a significant part of their business with SDVOB’s like ours. This is more than a gesture and its significance is not lost on our firm, which employs a large number of service-disabled veterans.”
